When can I have my braces on?

Orthodontic problems are usually apparent by the age of seven, when most of the adult front teeth have erupted. However, your dentist may detect an orthodontic problem earlier.

Early examination allows the dentist to detect & evaluate problems & plan appropriate treatment.

Early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and/or make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. Early treatment may also achieve results that are not possible once the face and jaws have stopped growing.

While the age of 7 may seem unusually early to consider braces, this pre-screening will give us the opportunity to use preventative measures to possibly correct situations that may lead to braces in the future, and /or advise the parent on future orthodontic treatment planning. Adults seeking orthodontic treatment may consult with us at any time, since it is never too late to consider correcting your teeth.

The initial consultation with the denist is typically a visual evaluation of the patient’s teeth and facial structure, with discussion to follow. If we require more in-depth information, or the patient agrees to begin treatment, diagnostic records are then taken. These diagnostic tools, consist of x-rays, models of the patient’s teeth, and photographs of the patient’s face and teeth. These are used to study and formulate a treatment plan to present to the patient.

Why Do I Need Braces?

Braces are used to move teeth into the ideal position and align how they bite together, known as occlusion. Malocclusion is used to describe the misalignment of teeth between the upper and lower dental arches, using the first molars as a reference point. There are three different types of misalignment, defined by the Angles Classification Method. Developed by Dr. Edward Angle, considered by many the founding father of orthodontics, this method of classification is widely used by dentists around the world:

  • Class I – Considered the ideal relationship between the upper and lower teeth. Crowding or spacing may be present with Class I bite.
  • Class II – Commonly known as “over bite.” The patient’s lower first molar is positioned posterior, or more towards the back of the mouth. The upper jaw, or maxilla, appears to protrude forward. Class II bite has two sub classes that also describe the position of the upper front teeth, but in both cases, the molar relationship is the same.
  • Class III – The patient’s lower first molar is positioned anterior, or closer to the front of the mouth. The lower jaw, or mandible, protrudes forward, and is best described as an “under bite.”

While some patients may have the ideal bite, they may suffer from varying degrees of crowding or spacing, another factor associated with a misaligned bite. Crowding is a condition that causes the teeth to overlap, rotate, and in some cases, grow into the incorrect position in the mouth, or in more extreme cases, cause the tooth to become trapped in the bone. Crowding may be caused because the dental arch is too small for the adult teeth, or the adult teeth are larger than normal. Crowding may also be caused by losing the primary or baby teeth early, or retaining them in the mouth longer than normal. These factors may inhibit the adult tooth, forcing it to erupt or grow into an incorrect position. Crowding makes it difficult to brush and floss the teeth correctly, possibly resulting in tooth decay or gingivitis.

Alternatively, varying degrees of spacing may be present, due to smaller teeth or jaw size. The most obvious example of spacing is the diastima, a space between the upper two front teeth, known as the centrals, made famous by Madonna.

Orthodontics is more than just straight teeth, misaligned teeth or an indication to incorrect your bite. It can affect more than just the appearance of your smile. The following conditions may potentially be corrected using orthodontics:

  • Speech impediments
  • Jaw or TMJ pain
  • Difficulty chewing and eating
  • Sleep apnoea caused by mouth breathing and snoring
  • Grinding or clenching of the teeth
  • Gum disease and tooth decay

Patients experiencing any of the above symptoms should contact their dentist to determine the cause of their condition.

Aesthetics do, however, play an important role when it comes to deciding if braces are right for you. Self-confidence may improve for patients that have concerns with the appearance of their teeth or facial shape. Many treatment options are available for correcting the look of your teeth and smile.

What are the different types of braces available?

Braces come in various types, including traditional braces, clear aligners/invisible braces, and Invisalign. The type of braces you need depends on your specific dental needs and personal preferences. Our orthodontic experts will help you choose the right option for your unique situation.

How long will I need to wear braces?

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies from person to person and depends on the complexity of the case. On average, treatment with braces can last anywhere from 18 months to 3 years. During your initial consultation, our orthodontist will provide a more accurate estimate based on your specific needs.

Will braces hurt, and how can I manage any discomfort?

It’s normal to experience some discomfort or soreness when you first get braces and after adjustments. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help ease any pain. Wax can be used to cover any sharp edges that may cause irritation. As you get used to your braces, the discomfort will subside. Our team will provide you with guidance on managing any discomfort and keeping your orthodontic journey as comfortable as possible.
